Tessa Thompson Is "Hopeful" Marvel Will Make an All-Female Movie
Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson says she's "hopeful" that Marvel might spotlight women with an all-female movie in Marvel Studios' Phase 4. While speaking on the red carpet of her latest movie Annihilation, she told IGN that there's definitely "an interest" in an all-female movie.
"I'm not Marvel so I can't make it happen, but I can tell you that Marvel is hugely collaborative, I think our even our Thor [Ragnarok] movie was basically the product of conversations they'd had with Chris [Hemsworth] and with Mark [Ruffalo] about what they wanted to do next. I think [Marvel boss] Kevin Feige is really excited by the idea, and if you look at what's happened already in Phase 4 with me and [Thompson's character] Valkyrie and our story, and then in Black Panther the women rule supreme.
"There's an interest - they're doing Captain Marvel, they're doing a Black Widow - there's an interest in having women at the forefront of this phase. I feel like it's hopeful, who knows."
Thompson played the kick-ass new character Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok and is currently starring in Annihilation, the sci-fi thriller from director Alex Garland (Ex Machina). She the one that initially brought the idea to Kevin Feige, and he said that it could happen. Karen Gillan also said that now is the right time for it. If it does happen, it would make sense for it to be a Lady Liberator film.
